Our Music

In addition to the excellence of our performances, Voce is renowned for the diversity and range of its repertoire. Since our founding, Voce has been especially committed to the performance of music by living composers, and we are proud to have presented a number of world premieres of works that we have commissioned. While contemporary choral music remains the core of our repertoire, the versatility of our singers allows us to explore a broad range of music for chamber choir, and our thematic programming strives to find points of connection between repertoire from across the world and across the centuries.
